How Corrupt is a Corrupt Media?


The media has ceased to exist, and the public plods on by assuming as true whatever the media suppresses and as false whatever the media covers.

he current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt.

They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically fused with the Democratic Party, the bicoastal liberal elite, and the progressive agenda.

The result is that the public cannot trust that the news it hears or reads is either accurate or true. The news as presented by these outlets has been carefully filtered to suppress narratives deemed inconvenient or antithetical to the political objectives of these entities, while inflating themes deemed useful.

This bias now accompanies increasing (and increasingly obvious) journalistic incompetence. Lax standards reflect weaponized journalism schools and woke ideology that short prior basic requisites of writing and ethical protocols of quoting and sourcing. In sum, a corrupt media that is ignorant, arrogant, and ideological explains why few now trust what it delivers.
Suppression

Once a story is deemed antithetical to left-wing agendas, there arises a collective effort to smother it. Suppression is achieved both by neglect, and by demonizing others who report an inconvenient truth as racists, conspiracist “right-wingers,” and otherwise irredeemable.

The Hunter Biden laptop story is the locus classicus. Social media branded the authentic laptop as Russian disinformation. That was a lie. But the deception did not stop them from censoring and squashing those who reported the truth.

Instead of carefully examining the contents of the laptop or interrogating Biden-company players such as Tony Bobulinksi, the media hyped the ridiculous disinformation hoax as a mechanism for suppressing the damaging pre-election story altogether.

Joe Biden’s cognitive state was another suppression story. The media simply stifled the truth that 2020 candidate Biden was unable to conduct a normal campaign due to his frailty and non-compos-mentis status. Few fully reported his often cruel and racist outbursts of the “lying-dog-faced-pony-soldier” and “you ain’t black”/“terrorist” sort.

The #MeToo media predictably quashed the Tara Reade disclosure. In fact, journalists turned on her in the manner that they previously had insisted was sexist and defamatory “blame-the-victim” smearing.

Joe Biden has long suffered from a sick tic of creepily intruding into the private space of young women and preteen girls: blowing their hair, talking into their ears, squeezing their necks, hugging in full body embraces—all for far too long. In other words, Biden should have expected the Charlie Rose or the Donald Trump Access Hollywood media treatment. Instead, he was de facto exonerated by collective media silence. To this day, despite staffers’ efforts to corral his wandering hands and head, he occasionally reverts to form with his creepy fixations with...

Not Even N95 Masks Work To Stop Covid


"The Experts™" have repeatedly tried to deflect from the failure of their policies with misdirection.

The reason lockdowns didn’t work in the United States or the United Kingdom is because they weren’t strict enough, according to many in the expert community.

Of course, their excuses have been conveniently ignored as China’s repressive zero COVID lockdowns have continued, with horrific consequences.

Now that mass protests have broken out in the country that “The Experts™” revered for their COVID handling, there’s a massive effort to disregard their own previous advocacy.

This is perhaps best exemplified by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who clearly used authoritarian measures to suppress the protests in his own country, while now supporting Chinese demonstrations.


The bewildering lack of awareness of their own hypocrisy seems to be a feature of COVID-obsessed politicians and public health authorities.

Another similar, oft-repeated assertion is that the failure of universal masking can be explained by the type of masks being used by the public.

Even though the CDC and Dr. Fauci explicitly claimed that wearing anything to cover your face would be effective at preventing transmission, many have now quietly dismissed that messaging.

Fauci specifically said that “cloth coverings work,” not just surgical or N95s. Former Surgeon General Jerome Adams famously suggested that rolling up a t-shirt in front of your face would be effective protection.

Yet public health departments and the media are now highlighting the importance of “high quality,” “well-fitted” masks.

Their desperation to justify masking has led to remarkably poor studies being released to support their anti-science messaging.

There is new research that has been released showing that masks are ineffective, regardless of type.

And it’s not just new research, it’s high quality research.
Finally, Another RCT on Mask Wearing

The Annals of Internal Medicine just published a randomized controlled trial comparing the ability of medical masks to prevent COVID infection to fit-tested N95s.

Importantly, this trial was conducted on healthcare workers who would be most likely to use masks appropriately.

To determine whether medical masks are noninferior to N95 respirators to prevent COVID-19 in health care workers providing routine care.

That trial design was also important as it was meant to determine whether or not N95 respirators were superior to “regular” surgical masks.

They examined 29 different health care facilities on multiple continents, from North America to Asia and Africa.

The percentage of healthcare workers testing positive for COVID in each group was tracked to determine how effective or ineffective higher-quality masking was in preventing...

California State Senator Scott Wiener Accused of Sending Hateful Homophobic Message to Himself


Twitter users are accusing California State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) of sending a homophobic message to himself in an alleged botched hate crime hoax.

After sparring online with high-profile conservatives, Wiener on Wednesday claimed a tweet posted by Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk had incited someone to send him a death threat.

“Not even 24 hours after MAGA grifter Charlie Kirk tweeted homophobic lies about me, I received this threat repeating one of his lies,” Weiner tweeted.

In a Twitter thread assailing Weiner on Tuesday, Kirk had written: “If elected Republicans care as much about their voters’ concerns as Scott Wiener cares about freeing pedophiles and mutilating children, they’d have won total victory long ago.”

In the thread, the conservative pundit referred to two controversial bills that were sponsored by Weiner in California: SB 145, which expanded discretion for judges to exempt mandatory sex offender registration in anal rape cases, and Senate Bill 107, which made California a “refuge” for minors from other states seeking radical irreversible sex change procedures on minors, including puberty blockers, chemical castration, and surgical amputations.

Wiener also co-sponsored a bill in 2017 to remove the felony penalty for knowingly exposing another person to HIV. Another bill he pushed, SB 866, would have allowed 12 year-olds to get mRNA injections without parental knowledge. The bill was too much for even liberal California, and was pulled after it caused a public outcry, which Wiener and his allies in the media characterized as a “hate-filled pressure campaign.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.) earlier this month called Wiener a “communist groomer” after he tweeted: “The word ‘groomer’ is categorically an anti-LGBTQ hate word.”

In a post headlined, “After A Death Threat, Senator Wiener Fires Back At Far-Right Attacks, SF Gate reported: “Weiner has described their comments as homophobic and a “stain on our country.”

Wiener said in a statement Wednesday: “LGBTQ leaders around the country are under attack by toxic, far-right ideologues and elected officials. These MAGA talking heads—whose party performed far worse than expected in the midterm elections—have no meaningful policy solutions for the issues facing our country. Instead, they are focused on slandering and demonizing gay and trans people and using us as scapegoats.”

To prove his point, he posted a threat that he claims was received less than 24 hours after Kirk had tweeted about his controversial positions. While he didn’t specify how the threat was sent, he implied it was through Twitter’s direct messaging, saying “Twitter is becoming a cesspool for this crap.”


As conservative Twitter noticed, Weiner appeared to have left his computer’s underlined grammar suggestions, and cursor bar in place when he screenshot the message, strongly suggesting that he typed the message himself.

After Twitter users pointed this out, Weiner claimed it was a voicemail that had been transcribed, not an email.

“And for all the MAGA conspiracy theorists out there, the threat was a voicemail,” he tweeted. “This is a transcription. But have fun spinning around with your conspiracies.”

Twitter users found that suspicious too, since a voicemail transcript would not display a cursor and spell check marks. In other words, instead of having his iPhone transcribe the voicemail into a text format for him, Weiner appears to have typed it out manually.

“Oh so you got a voicemail death threat and instead of posting the audio you carefully transcribed it, posted the transcript, and never even mentioned that it was a voicemail until everyone doubted your original story? Sure that makes sense, Jussie. Totally believable,” tweeted the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh.

Twitter users accused the lawmaker of attempting to claim victimhood status through an apparent fake hate crime, and dubbed him:

TRIGGERED liberals melt down over revelations of Twitter censorship

Glenn Greenwald said, "The sleazy, pro-censorship pack of liberal employees of media corporations united last night" to attack Matt Taibbi, "as they do to any journalist who breaks a real story about real power centers ."

On Friday, Twitter owner Elon Musk started releasing "the Twitter files," documents revealing the extent the social media platform censored stories and interfered in American elections. The files were reported on by Matt Taibbi, causing liberal establishment media to parrot the same, by rote, lines, such as claiming that Taibbi is doing "PR work for the richest man on the planet" and that Musk is a "far-right extremist."

Journalist Glenn Greenwald posted screenshots of several of the posts and wrote, "The sleazy, pro-censorship pack of liberal employees of media corporations united last night to attack @mtaibbi -- as they do to any journalist who breaks a real story about real power centers -- and, because they were so desperate to discredit it, showed what they are."

Greenwald's collection of posts show The Atlantic contributor Devon Heinen saying, "the current person handling content moderation at #Twitter has proven by his actions on the platform to be a far-right extremist."

Greenwald also posted several responses by NBC contributor Ben Collins, who tacitly admitted in October that Musk's purchase of Twitter would end the site's stranglehold on information, said that what happened at Twitter was "regular people" doing "regular comms work."

Collins had also claimed Twitter and Democrats colluding to interfere in the 2020 election was acceptable because, "Content moderation is messy!"

Collins also said Taibbi's work was "hack stuff."



MSNBC personality Chris Hayes said he was watching Musk, and others like him, "red-pill" themselves into "disaster."

Ian Miles Cheong posted more examples and wrote, "Welcome to the narrative. The MSM and establishment hacks have gotten their talking points about @elonmusk ’s Twitter Files."


Cheong's post documents the similarity in liberal media figures posting the same message about Taibbi doing Musk's PR work.

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier said Taibbi should have asked himself, "'Hey, should I be doing PR work for the richest man on the planet?'"

MSNBC personality Mehdi Hasan said "Imagine volunteering to do online PR work for the world's richest man."

Taibbi said of the "PR work" angle, "Looking forward to going through all the tweets complaining about “PR for the richest man on earth,” and seeing how many of them have run stories for anonymous sources at the FBI, CIA, the Pentagon, White House, etc.":
